If you're into cycling and it's technological developments then this is the book for you! Its a great snapshot of the development of one of the greatest names in component design for the cycling community. Tracking the early days of Tullio and his original spark of creativity that spawned an industry.

With great photography and illustrations, it written in such a way that even non cyclists could glean an understanding of why real bicycles and their parts cost what they do.

Unlike most coffee table books; this publication is one you can comfortably read it from cover to cover.

It would be nice to see a similar vesion on Campy's arch competitor Shimano.

I gave this book as a present for my boyfriend, and the book is really nice, with some great pictures and a good story about it all.
But, there is some of the chapters that suddently just stop so you can't read the rest of the text.
But otherwise a great book.

Despite what you might read elsewhere, this is actually a very nice book with quality paper and good photographs. As it is the only book I am aware of which has been produced on Campagnolo clearly it is desirable to any road cyclist who is an "Italianophile", however what I cannot get over is the totally ridiculous prices that people ask for it. It is not even a rare book.

Bought as a Xmas gift for my cycling-mad son. He loves vintage bikes and parts, and consequently loves this book.
